Your fur baby rules the family, and this mug set poetically says you wouldn't have it any other way. Unique from head to tail, each design features a playful acrostic poem celebrating your kitty's special traits—from the piebald who will "dote on your every scratch and pat" to the tortoiseshell who is "often feisty... seldom wrong"—and a fetching illustration. It's stamped with an "Ailurophile" seal: aka "official cat purr-son". Poems by Martin Geller. Illustration by Patricia Carlin. Mugs made in Tucson, Arizona. Decorated in Brooklyn, New York.

“I like to keep things pretty simple. I focus on warmth, humor, and emotion.”

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says.

We chatted with Patricia about how she brings her charming illustrations to life (and got a look at her adorable studio cat). Read the Q&A on our blog.
